Brewing real ale in the Land of the Prince Bishops


The Brewery

Black Paw Brewery is an independent microbrewery in Bishop Auckland, Co. Durham where brewer/proprietor Phil Whitfield, a.k.a. Black Paw, brews real ale for discerning beer lovers around the North of England and beyond. 

Our Brewery is a 10 bbl plant and can be found in the centre of Bishop Auckland, located in Westgate Road close to Newgate Street, the main shopping centre for the town.  There is parking right outside, so when we open the brewery for bottle sales and brewery tours (coming soon!) you won’t have to lug your bottle purchases far.  The bus station is just round the corner, and the train station is a 10-15 minute walk away.
